Our mission here at Imerman Angels is to provide PERSONALIZED connections that enable one-on-one support among cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers. Jonny Imerman truly touched many people with his survival story. It captured our hearts and enabled us to do the same to many others around the world.
What we do here at Imerman Angels is uniquely match cancer fighters, survivors and caregivers to anyone seeking cancer support. We like to call them “Mentor Angels” who are walking, talking, living proof, and inspiration that cancer can be beaten—just like Jonny Imerman himself.
Jim Higley, also known as: Bobblehead Dad, is a writer, speaker, life observer, and cancer warrior. Jim is well respected here at Imerman Angels and one of our greatest supporters!

“The only thing better about the name ‘Single Jingles’ is the message that it carries!!!! Matt Ferstler created Single Jingles to make young men more comfortable about discussing testicular cancer – the #1 most common cancer among young men in America – to educate and create awareness to increase early detection… And save more lives!!! What we need in the testicular cancer world is a FUNNY name like Single Jingles to make guys laugh!! We need to make them laugh and get comfortable in order to get more people to talk about it!!! As a 2x testicular cancer survivor, I will do everything in my power to help Matt Ferstler and the Single Jingles to make the testicular cancer world a safer and better place!!! Great job AngelsMatt!!!” ~Jonny Imerman
I came across the blog of one of our mentor angels/volunteers, Jemma, who shared her story about how she became involved with Imerman Angels. Jemma is a two time cancer survivor. She now lives an active life, participating in athletic events for the charities that she supports. Read about this, her experience with our partner charity First Descents, and her cancer survivor story at IAMJEM.
